The Scorpio New Moon on November 18th is deeply personal and transformative, and is going to touch all of us on a soul level.
Scorpio is the sign that rules over the transformative art of death and rebirth.
Every day when the Sun sets we experience a type of death and everyday when the Sun rises we experience a type of rebirth.
Life is always giving us opportunities to shed ourselves and to be reborn into something new, and that is exactly what this New Moon energy is beckoning us to do.
This is not a rebirthing process that will happen overnight. In fact, chances are you may have been rebirthing yourself since the Scorpio Full Moon which happened back in May 2017.
Perhaps think back to what was unfolding for you during the month of May. Perhaps think back to what you were called to let go of and release in your life.
Perhaps it has been since this time that you have been shedding the layers and ending all that no longer serves you. Perhaps it has been since this time that you have had to let go and release so you can be reborn.
Back in May 2017, I lost my sister due to aggressive cancer. Her demise happened very quickly and her death was very sudden and unexpected.
Since this time I have really been able to understand death and life on a whole new level. The cycle of death and rebirth has felt very literal to me, and there has been a lot of grief to wade through.
While this may not be your experience, perhaps you can relate in someway. Perhaps there is something you have had to let go or grieve in order to be reborn.
Death in any form always carries varying degrees of pain, however if we can look beyond to the rebirth phase, perhaps we can see that there is always a purpose and there is always a new opportunity.
Even though the Sun bids us farewell every night, it always rises again and it always brings new opportunities and a chance to start again.
Embrace this as your mantra during the Scorpio New Moon, and open yourself to the fact that life is always bringing second chances and new opportunities.
To help navigate through this New Moon energy, pay attention to what needs to be released from your life and reflect on all the “deaths” that have transpired not just over the last 6 months, but over the entire year.
Look back and see how you have grown, look back and see just how far you have come. Look back and give yourself a pat on the back, because even if you made mistakes, even if things did not go the way you intended them to do, you made it and here you are, reading this article and finding ways to improve yourself.
Life is always a series of twist and turns, and under the influence of the Scorpio New Moon we are all going to receive the potential to rise up and shine with our truest colors.
We have all been a journey of peeling back the layers, and now it is time to celebrate how far we have come and what is next on the road ahead.
The time to officially rebirth ourselves is here and even though there may be some residual pain and grief, know that this is where we are all heading.
2017 has been a year of new beginnings, and as we reach the end of the year we are really going to be reminded to step into the new and release the old. We are really going to be reminded to dig deep into our souls and uncover new depths and a new way of understanding.
The Scorpio New Moon is the highest point of rebirth energy for the year, so use it to rise up like the phoenix out of the ashes. Use this energy to shine like the star you truly are.
